sound problem MPEG-1
Itâs a decent feature but plagued with a lousy sound track for much of the film. At times it is impossible entirely to hear the sound track over static. It lowers my rating considerably as it is more depressing as the film gathers interest so the disappointment is deep
A blind white man lost at sea at the mercy of innocent natives and selfish white traders gathers much compassion and holds interest with picturesque scenery. There is a story book plot, a romantic Island pretty scenery, and heart wrenching situations. The Justice of the Native Gods runs through the film.
I wonât tell you more in case you chance the sound problem for the joy of this dramatic presentation.
